How can squint be corrected?

Q: I am a 25 years old male with a squint in my right eye. During a medical checkup at school, I came to know that there was no vision in my right eye. Ten years back I underwent a surgery but my squint did not get corrected and even after the surgery, I have no vision in my right eye. I also underwent a cosmetic surgery last year but the condition is still the same. Can I get my vision back and can my squint be corrected?

A:When one eye has poor vision, it results problems in co-ordination in both eyes that might lead to squint. Squint surgery will not improve vision but help cosmetically, but in cases where there is a gross difference of vision in both eyes squint is likely to reappear in 25 % cases. Other remedies include prismatic glasses, which hide the squint.
